Hi Charles,

I heard recently that Olive Oil prices have been rising over the past few months. Being a follower of your blog, I figured I'd come to the expert for information.

Is it indeed the case that the prices have been rising and do you have a view as to the cause of such rise?

Drought May 11 to May 12. Very bad, prolonged freeze in February. Late bloom ran right into an early hot spell in June.

Hence, crop may be half normal. For me doesn't even make 10 percent.

With all that, prices have only managed to rise to what were normal up to 4 years ago.
